We’re playing in London on Friday 3rd August, supporting Cath and Phil Tyler at The Nest Collective’s Campfire Club.
It is going to outdoors and unamplified, so we took our instruments to a field in Bedfordshire on a warm summer’s evening to practise. Next time, we’re going to wear some bug spray.

He picked up the bouzouki in 2008 and has performed/recorded and worked with many great musicians and groups such as Barrule, Tony Christie, Luke Daniels and Cara Dillon.
